Alton Webteam: March 2018
Rev Chris Blake and Liz George will be running the Methodist Church's Safeguarding training "Creating Safer Spaces" at various venues around the Circuit in coming months. There are two slightly different courses; "Foundation" for those who have never done it before, and "Refresher" for those who have. It is a requirement that all who work with children or vulnerable adults, all local preachers and worship leaders, and all stewards, attend every four years. However protecting the weakest and vulnerable in our society is a whole community responsibility and anyone within HSBC churches who would like to attend is welcome. Please find the fliers in your church and book your place. For further information contact Liz George 01420 88721 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
